In the later part of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, [[Kodak]] cameras typically came with either simple meniscus lenses, dual meniscus lenses (periscopic type), achromatic meniscus lenses, or better lenses from third parties such as [[Bausch & Lomb]]'s [[Rapid Rectilinear]].

In 1914, Kodak introduced the first of a long line of lenses labeled '''Kodak Anastigmats'''. These lenses had an aperture of f/8 and were a 4 element dialyt design, like the [[Goerz]]/[[Schneider]] Artars. The following year, the Series II lenses were introduced with apertures of f/7.7 and focal lengths of 170mm and 203mm. These lenses were popular through the 1930s, and one in particular was in production (although almost certainly with minor design changes and modern glass types) into the 1950s as the Kodak Ektar f/7.7 203mm.
